Brcokway, PA – The Brockway Area School District held its second meeting of May to approve the proposed budget, giving residents some welcome news… no new taxes this year.

The district will approve the $16,048,450 budget at its June 23 meeting, keeping taxes the same even though the budget reflects an increase of 1.6 percent over the 2019-2020 school year.

The district also approved co-opting with DuBois Central Catholic for girls’ soccer. It is continuing to retain the Law Firm of Ferraro, Kruk, and Ferraro for legal representation and Frontline
